The Geese And The Turtle

There is the story told of two geese and a turtle that developed a deep friendship. As the nights became shorter and cooler the geese started talking about flying to a warmer place and one night openly the geese began discussing how they will miss their friend the turtle. They began to wonder how their friend the turtle will cope in the winter since he could not fly.

The turtle then came up with an excellent idea, “why don’t you get a strong stick the two of you can hold it with your strong beaks at both ends and I will hold on to the middle with my strong teeth and that way I can fly with you.”
“Are you sure you can hold on long enough”
the geese asked, “Sure I am very strong” the turtle replied.

As these three flew over a farm, a farmer was awestruck by this sight as two geese and a turtle flew over his farm, he called his wife who saw the sight and could not help but exclaimed. “What a great idea! Who came up with such a brilliant idea?” The turtle could not resist the praise and said “I did” the rest is history.

Relationship

WHY RELATIONSHIP? 

Man was never created to live in isolation; every person needs a companion, a friend, a confidant. We all need relationships. When God created Adam, He saw that Adam was good. Everything about Adam was perfect. So why did He have to create Eve. 

GOD said, "It's not good for the Man to be alone; I'll make him a helper, a companion.”  (Gen 2:18) 

Adam was having a good time with God, yet God knew Adam needed a companion. Someone like Adam, someone who will help him fulfill his God given purpose, HIS God-given goals, someone who will be there when he needed encouragement, someone who he could laugh with and share with, someone like him, but unique in their own way. 

Isolation is not healthy; God did not create us for Isolation but for relationship.

Who Is He To You?

“He saith unto them, But who say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jonah: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father who is in heaven.” (Matt 16:15-17)

Many people say Jesus is the greatest leader that ever walked this earth.
Some say He was a great philosopher.
Some say He was good.
Some say He was a great guru.
Some don’t even know what to make of Him.
To some people he was just another prophet.
But who is He to you?
Jesus asked His disciples this same question thousands of years ago.

Only One Name

Remember those days you were still a child, how you hardly had any worries or cares. You didn't need to worry about much. All you longed for was to grow up and become an adult. A man, a woman of your own. To come to a time where you could do what you liked. Come in and go out as you like. Boy! Did adulthood come quickly.

It did and for many of us we came to a realisation that this world was not exactly as we hoped it will be. We came out of fantasy land and landed into real life. We woke up into the reality of the world and all its wickedness, problems and evils staring right into our faces. This was not what we were expecting and regardless of our backgrounds, some things were just too much to handle.

Unity In The House

Key Scripture: Psalm 133 v1-3 (The message): ‘How wonderful, how beautiful, when brothers and sisters get along!...Yes, that's where GOD commands the blessing, ordains eternal life’. .

A happy family is a family that is united. As a local body of Christ and a family, it is important that we all get along. Of course, there will be times of disagreement. Also, each one of us will have people that we ‘gel with’ and deem our closest friend and confidant. That is natural. However we should all, in keeping with the word of God, cultivate an attitude of unity. By doing this, I believe that we will truly be blessed to fulfil our calling and purpose and therefore the mandate of the church of Christ today.

Imagine

I was speaking to the lord the other day!

I was feeling really bad about my intimacy with him.

As far as I was concerned my intimacy was not as deep as I would have loved it to be.
